From fundamental to applied 

ICME is engaged with over 50 faculty from 20-plus departments throughout Stanford, which provides a unique opportunity to see how computational mathematics, data science, scientific computing, and related fields are applied across a wide range of domains.

Research Groups

ICME faculty and students participate in a wide array of research activities.  Here are just a few research groups with ties to ICME:

AHPCRC, or the Army High Performance Computing Research Center, houses a research program focused on two primary objectives: producing cutting-edge software tools for the next-generation HPC environments, and developing innovative computational methodologies that harness the power of these new environments for the solution of some of the most challenging problems in engineering and science.  Professor Charbel Farhat heads the AHPCRC.  

PSAAP II is a collaboration between Stanford, the University of Michigan, the University of Minnesota, the University of Colorado at Boulder, the University of Texas Austin and the State University of New York at Stony Brook.  The project, Predictive Simulations of Particle-laden Turbulence in a Radiation Environment, investigates the effect of radiation on particle motion in an air-­turbulent environment. Professor Gianluca Iaccarino directs the project, which also involves Professors Juan Alonso, Eric Darve, Patrick Hanrahan, Sanjiva Lele, Parviz Moin, and George Papanicolaou. 

SDSI is the Stanford Data Science Initiative (SDSI), a university-wide organization focused on core data technologies with strong ties to application areas across campus.  Professors Margot Gerritsen, Ashish Goel, Trevor Hastie, and Vijay Pande are members of the SDSI Working Group. 

SOAL, the SOcial Algorithms Lab, works on problems at the interface of social and economic sciences on one hand, and computational science and algorithms on the other.  SOAL faculty leaders include Professors Ashish Goel, Ramesh Johari, and Amin Saberi.
